Bridgeport D suspended
The AHL suspended Bridgeport defenseman Marc Cantin on Tuesday because of a match penalty for an illegal check to the head in a Feb. 1 game against Springfield.
Cantin will miss Bridgeport's next four games. The first and last of those are against the Albany Devils, both in Bridgeport, this Saturday and Feb. 16.
In Bridgeport's game at Albany on Jan. 31, Albany winger Joe Whitney fired a shot from the slot that hit the left post, then the back of goalie Anders Nilsson before trickling toward the goal line. Cantin was on hand to stop the puck before it could entirely cross the line and swept it under Nilsson to freeze the play.
The Devils are 5-1-0-1 against Bridgeport this season and have outscored the Sound Tigers, 29-17. Still, in his four games played against Albany, Cantin has a plus-minus rating of zero.
